Don't forget that Sugarmegs has streams of Stones shows such as the one below:

"The Rolling Stones - Bedspring Symphony - Vinyl bootleg TAKRL1941

Vinyl bootleg in at least VG+ condition >> Yamaha P-500 with Ortofon VMS2EO MK II pickup >>
Yamaha AX-550, pure direct mode >> Edirol R09, 16 bit/44100 Hz, SD card >>
Sound Forge 8 for track splitting and normalization >> TLH >> flac level 6 >> DIME

According to is this sourced from Brussels, Belgium 1973-10-17,
first show and taken from a radio broadcast 1974-11-24.

Quote from Hot Wacks (the bootleg bible): "The best Stones live recording, surpasses
even the officially released live albums in quality"

01-Intro side A
02-Gimme Shelter
03-Tumbling Dice
04-Brown Sugar
07-Intro side B
08-Honky Tonk Woman
09-Midnight Rambler
10-All Down The Line
11-Street Fighting Man

The intros of each LP-side can be funny to listen to the first two or three times
but then they are mostly annoying. But they are on the LP so I left it as it is.

Scan of "cover" insert included in torrent."

As a teenager, I thought "Tattoo You" and "One Hit to the Body" were what the Stones were about. Then, I went a little further back and found the motherlode and then I found shows like this...

Thanks, Mr. Olympia. I'm on my way to the bookstore,

I was in 8th grade when Some Girls came out. I loved that but for some reason was on my high horse about Tattoo You being a "sell-out". Ironically, now I find out that they basically wrote and recorded pretty much all of the Some Girls/Emotional Rescue/Tattoo stuff at more or less the same time. Oh well.

Hoping to have similar positive revelations for the post Tattoo stuff that I hardly know at all, (except live versions from the past few tours). While I can't comment on that yet, (I've just finished Emo.Rescue in my journey through the complete stones), I can say that, having listened to every show on their previous tour, they still got it in spades and are well worth following closely.
